  1. Time for us to go

    FT: Bristol 12-11 Bath; Wasps 35-22 Gloucester

    We must dash as to be frank, we don't want to miss the start of the England v Italy game.

    Thanks for joining us - a win of epic proportions for Bristol over rivals Bath, while Wasps march on with a bonus-point triumph over Gloucester.

    See you next time.

  2. Where to go next

    England v Italy (15:00 GMT)

    England v Italy

    With another Premiership weekend done and dusted, you now have my permission to turn your attention towards England, and their Six Nations match against Italy.

    Kick off at Twickenham is quickly approaching - you can follow all the action here.

  3. Bristol reaction

    FT: Bristol 12-11 Bath; Wasps 35-22 Gloucester

    Bristol fly-half Gavin Henson told BT Sport:

    "I'm just so happy we saw it out.

    "We can take a lot from that which will help for next week, which will be a massive game.

    "We're fighting for our lives and there was a good attitude from us today."

  4. Full-time

    Wasps 35-22 Gloucester

    Wasps go six points clear at the top of the Premiership with a bonus-point win.

    Jimmy Gopperth a huge influence with his 25 points.

  5. Full-time

    Bristol 12-11 Bath

    The reaction at the full-time whistle says it all - this is a massive victory for Bristol.

    A first win over their rivals in 11 years, which moves the bottom side to within two points of Worcester, who they visit next Sunday.

    Gavin Henson kicks all their points, with Semesa Rokoduguni's try not enough for Bath

  6. Try (Christian Wade)

    Wasps 35-22 Gloucester

    A fifth try for Wasps and the leading try scorer in the league makes sure of the win if it wasn't already. 

    Jimmy Gopperth unable to add to his tally.

  7. Post update

    Wasps 30-22 Gloucester

    One minute left in Coventry. Guess who got man of the match?

    Gloucester can still get themselves a losing bonus point with a score.

  8. Post update

    Bristol 12-11 Bath

    The hosts are digging deeper than they probably have done all season.

    Bath are probing, but Semesa Rokoduguni in particular is having a frustrating time of it.

    Just over two minutes to hold on for a famous win.

  9. Try (Jimmy Gopperth)

    Wasps 30-22 Gloucester

    What more can you say about this man?

    His hat-trick, Wasps' fourth and he has 25 points of their 30 after missing the conversion.

    It is off the back of a driving maul and is that the moment Wasps finally secure the win?

  10. Post update

    Bristol 12-11 Bath

    Gavin Henson shows he has defensive steel as well as kicking ability, as he and Jack Lam secure Bristol a precious penalty while under severe pressure.

    Bath's Guy Mercer is a tad lucky not to go to the bin - but his arm doesn't make contact with an opponent and he is let off.

    Into the last seven minutes.

  11. Try (Max Scott)

    Wasps 25-22 Gloucester

    Game on. Very, very much game on.

    Tom Marshall's break sets up Max Scott who sprints away to dot down near the posts and allows Billy Twelvetrees an easier conversion, which he gets.

    Three tries each. A three-point ball game.

  12. No try

    Wasps 25-15 Gloucester

    It is Kurtley Beale this time with the defence saving moment.

    As Gloucester pound the line it looks inevitable they have gone over but the Australian puts enough of his body under the ball to prevent a try.

    10 minutes to go.

  13. Try (Semesa Rokoduguni)

    Bristol 12-11 Bath

    Semesa Rokoduguni

    Tusi Pisi has his pass intercepted by Semesa Rokoduguni, who sprints clear from his own half to score his 10th try of the season.

    The England international is electric, and the Bristol players chasing him down had to give up.

    It was worth the wait for that try, but Bath's Rhys Preistland misses the conversion to leave them a point behind with 11 minutes to go

  14. No try

    Wasps 25-15 Gloucester

    Josh Bassett thought he had secured that fourth try and bonus-point but credit the scrambling Gloucester defence here.

    On the line they are able to get hands under the ball as the Wasps wing stretches to place down and prevent the score.

  15. Post update

    Bristol 12-6 Bath

    Bath have won all three meetings with Bristol so far this season, but the home side aren't far away from getting one back on their rivals.

    They look relatively comfortable here, with penalties looking more likely than tries.

  16. Post update

    Wasps 25-15 Gloucester

    There are 14 minutes to go at the Ricoh Arena and lots to play for. 

    One try for Wasps secures them a try bonus-point, while a score for Gloucester gets them within lose bonus-point territory.

  17. Penalty (Jimmy Gopperth)

    Wasps 25-15 Gloucester

    Jiimmy Gopperth

    Is there a finer kicker in the Premiership?

    Jimmy Gopperth takes his tally for the day up to 20 points with another penalty and importantly puts Wasps more than one score away from Gloucester.

  18. Penalty (Rhys Preistland)

    Bristol 12-6 Bath

    Rhys Preistland

    It wouldn't be a derby without some handbags, but Bristol may regret it as it results in a Bath penalty.

    Rhys Preistland hasn't been quite as accurate as his opposite number this afternoon, but makes no mistake this time.

  19. Post update

    Bristol 12-3 Bath

    Less than 25 minutes to play at Ashton Gate.

    The way things are going Gavin Henson, who has kicked all of Bristol's points, is heading for man of the match on his return from injury.

    Can Bath do anything to stop that?

  20. Post update

    Wasps 22-15 Gloucester

    Willie Le Roux's afternoon is done as Josh Bassett replaces him.

    As you'd expect, some classy touches from the South Africa international on show during his 55 minute stint.

    Gloucester enjoying a good spell of possession deep in Wasps' territory.
